During the summer, many of the fruit-eating birds in our care would love any extra fruit from your gardens that you would like to share.  Native and wild berries are an especially welcome treat!  Sparrows and finches appreciate native grasses and sunflowers.

Are you crafty?  A friend of NSCC started knitting these wonderful knit nests for our baby birds.  We can always use more.  If you're a knitter and have some extra yarn to use up, here are the directions for Barbara's Knit Nests.
